I was thinking about cutting a hole in the side of my propane grill and adding a smoker box when these came out... My wife and kids watched me drool over this one for a few months and bought it for me for fathers day... They even purchased the add on smoker box... It's the most versatile grill I've ever used...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Working on getting the upper shelves/cabinets buttoned up...






Storage above the sleeping quarters...




Fridge area is looking good...




Vanity/medicine cabinet area getting some love...




Mood lighting in the back where the magic happens...




Light installed under the shelf above the dinette area...




Little bit more carpet and trim needed...




Temporary shore power... Need to find a little lock door thingy...




Coat rack/key hanger, that's been floating around for a while, finally got a home...




About 30 lbs of venison summer sausage and Mt Dew in the bus fridge... Bring on the Zombies!!!




My stash, shhhh...




Luckily I didn't let out the magic smoke when I hooked everything up... I've never figured out how to put the magic smoke back into things after I let it out...




Slowly getting the sheet metal that hides the wiring installed...




Cut in for bedroom lamp...




Everything is layered, one piece over the top of another... Its making everything nice and solid, very snug fit... I can still take it all apart to get back into something if need be...




More sheet metal work...




It'll look really good after the square tube is cleaned up and painted hammerite black...

Trimming out some of the diamond plate...




Trimmed the diamond plate behind the stove... Gonna trim the cabinet doors the same way...




Working on the sheet metal that covers the wiring loom running thru the upper galley cabinet...




Working on the furnace cabinet...




Now it's time for some panels to close it up...




Making some progress...










View from the front seat...




View from the rear driver side...




Rear view mirror...

Re: The Dirtybus...

I like the appliances all together like that (w/h, furnace, fridge). Enjoying this build.

Re: The Dirtybus...

The furnace and water heater are toward the back behind the bathroom, the fridge is on the opposite side toward the front... I keep the traditional triangle in the galley with the fridge, stove and sink...

I built houses for a long time and was a general contractor for a number of years, so I have a pretty good understanding of setting up a good work area... Of course when your in the construction trade, you usually end up wearing many different hats... This has helped a lot with building the bus...


So, I took the bus thru emissions yesterday (passed) and decided to stop at Fredys to grab some stuff... No real reason other than the fact that it makes total sense to use the bus for running errands...

I come back out and there's a bee hanging out around the drivers seat... Great...

So, I'm in the Fredys parking lot battling a bee in the bus... The people driving by must think I'm completely insane...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Really like the green color scheme...... After 24 yrs of Army life it kinda grows on ya.......
and if that awning was any bigger you could just park your bus under it.....

Looking good

Re: The Dirtybus...

When you skinned the bus, did you go over or under the rub rail?

Re: The Dirtybus...

I went over... I removed all the rivets along the top of the rub rail and where the skins for the windows were and pre-drilled the new skins, then riveted it back together... The skins were slid up behind and under the drip rail when they went in and were welded to the drip rail from the inside...
